Last year's heralded crop of free agent signings led to an 8-8 season and no play-off spot, so the Eagles are re-powering for a Super Bowl. Yesterday, the Eagles announced that they had formed a new partnership with NRG that would install a 3 megawatt solar system and 14 micro wind turbines at Lincoln Financial Field.http://mobile.philly.com/sports/eagles/?wss=philly/sports/eagles&id=141085513. The Eagles remain the leading sports franchise dedicated to reducing environmental impacts through recycling, composting, and clean energy practices.
The wind and solar systems are scheduled to be operating by December 2012, when the Eagles should have clinched a playoff spot and be Super Bowl bound. Skeptical? Hope springs eternal for NFL fans in March of every year.
